Caring for Sia

Light

The Triostar enjoys bright indirect light where its colours will shine. But direct light will burn leaves.

Water & humidity

Water twice a week, keeping the soil slightly moist, but never soaked. Too much water will cause roots to rot. If you're unsure rather let the top 1cm of soil dry out between watering. Reduce watering in winter! Triostars love warmth & humidity, so spritz regularly or place near a humidifier. Brown leaf tips are a sign that the air is too dry.

Feeding

Feed monthly in summer.

Re-potting

It's best to do this every year to prevent the soil from becoming too compact as the roots wrap themseleves tightly around the pot. Re-pot in spring with a well draining indoor potting mix. Do not pack the soil tightly around the roots - keep it loose. You can also split and divide your plant by gently pulling away sections from each other.

Atrium Top Tip

Triostars love humid conditions like those found in their jungle home. Read our tips on raising humidity levels for houseplants for best results.
